Celje host visiting team Tabor Sežana at Stadion Z'dežele in the PrvaLiga clash on Saturday.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for Celje v Tabor Sežana can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Celje will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 0-1 PrvaLiga triumph vs Maribor.
An interesting trait of more recent Celje games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their previous six matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a losing one.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Maribor in PrvaLiga action, Tabor Sežana and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Looking at their form, and Tabor Sežana have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 14 goals overall. Defensively, Češnjice (The Cherries) could really do with shoring things up. That sort of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, of course.
Going into this contest, Tabor Sežana haven’t won away from home in the past 11 league games. A poor run.

Team News: Celje
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Celje gaffer Dušan Kosič to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Denis Marandici (Back trouble) won’t play.
Team News: Tabor Sežana
Owing to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, Tabor Sežana boss Almir Sulejmanović has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.
We’re inclined to think that Tabor Sežana should have enough to find the back of the net against this Celje team, but that may not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Celje at the end of this one. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
